The Bible, like every other religious text (Qur'an, Pali Cannon, Vedas, Torah, etc.) was created by man, and NOT by some divine being, or were directly influenced by a divine being. This is my view on the subject, and I'm curious to know all of yours.

Isn't it odd that so many texts were written about a divine being by so many different people?

Does it make any difference what divine beings they are referring to?

Where do they get the idea that there is a divine being?

Extrapolation from observable reality. Same place we get most of our ideas.

Well, I said observable reality, which is that which we can observe (in an empirical sense) to actually exist. In this context, ideas are thoughts or actions about what may possibly exist. Like I said, those kinds of ideas often come from extrapolation from observable reality.

If you're suggesting that is the correct interpretation of the observer effect on subatomic scales, then no, that's not even approaching a proven statement.

If you're talking about something completely different that I haven't heard of, then I look forward to being informed about it.

I've heard of the simulated reality hypothesis. Are you suggesting that this has been proved true?
